Lover Come Back is a 1946 romantic comedy film directed by William A. Seiter. The film stars George Brent, Lucille Ball and Vera Zorina in her last film role. Supporting actors include Raymond Walburn and Charles Winninger.

To avoid confusion with Lover Come Back (1961), this film was retitled When Lovers Meet for television.


Kay Williams (played by Ball) is anxious to provide feminine companionship to her war correspondent husband (Brent) upon his return from service, but is jealous when she notices her husband with a beautiful combat photographer (Zorina). The couple divorces but eventually makes amends; hence, "lovers come back".
